6. The Thrifty Tomboy
Courtney, also known as The Thrifty Tomboy, has effortless style. She incorporates a lot of sustainable fashion brands that I also wear, such as Tradlands and Only Child.
Courtney’s bio reads: “In pursuit of a conscious wardrobe and having more with less.” I think that final sentiment really embodies how sustainability and fashion can intertwine.
The fast fashion industry is about having as much as possible for as little as possible. But do these items really end up having meaning in your life? Or are they simply tossed aside after a year or two of wear?
While fast fashion ignores environmental consequences and has questionable social practices, slow fashion is the antithesis of this. Slow fashion cares about the health of our planet along with the treatment of workers and operates around the notion that clothing should be an investment that is designed to last.
